What to Expect at Your Anti-Wrinkle Appointment

As the years pass, our skin starts to show signs of aging, with wrinkles being one of the most common and noticeable changes. Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic treatments have made it easier than ever to combat these signs of aging effectively. At Boss Injectables, we specialise in anti-wrinkle treatments designed to help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned pro, knowing what to expect at your anti-wrinkle appointment can help you feel more at ease and prepared for the experience.

Pre-Appointment Preparation

Before your appointment, there are a few steps you can take to ensure you are ready and can make the most out of your treatment.

Consultation and Assessment

The journey to smoother skin begins with a thorough consultation. During this initial meeting, one of our experienced practitioners will assess your skin, discuss your concerns, and understand your goals. This consultation is crucial as it helps to create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.

Medical History and Allergies

You will be asked to provide your medical history, including any medications you are taking and any known allergies. This information is essential to ensure that the treatment is safe and suitable for you.

Avoid Certain Medications

It is recommended to avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen a few days before your appointment, as these can increase the risk of bruising. Also, avoid alcohol and smoking, as these can affect the treatment and recovery process.

Skincare Routine Adjustments

Refrain from using any exfoliating or irritating skincare products in the days leading up to your appointment. Products containing retinoids or acids can increase skin sensitivity and should be avoided to minimise the risk of irritation.

The Appointment: Step-by-Step

On the day of your appointment, you can expect a comfortable and professional experience at Boss Injectables. Here’s a step-by-step guide of what will happen during your visit.

Arrival and Check-In

Upon arrival, you will be warmly greeted by our friendly staff and asked to check in. If it’s your first visit, you will need to fill out some paperwork, including a consent form for the treatment.

Facial Assessment and Marking

Once in the treatment room, your practitioner will begin with a detailed assessment of your facial muscles and skin. They will discuss the areas you wish to treat and may take photos for your medical records. The practitioner may also mark the areas to be treated to guide the injection process.

Numbing and Preparation

To ensure your comfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas. While anti-wrinkle injections are generally well-tolerated, this step helps to minimise any discomfort you might feel during the procedure.

The Injection Process

The actual injection process is relatively quick, usually taking only 10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated. Using a fine needle, the practitioner will carefully inject small amounts of the anti-wrinkle solution into the targeted muscles. The injections may cause a slight pinching sensation, but this is typically brief and mild.

Post-Treatment Care and Instructions

After the injections, you will be given detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and minimise any potential side effects.

Immediate Post-Treatment Care

  • Avoid Touching the Treated Areas: Do not rub or massage the treated areas for at least 24 hours to prevent the solution from spreading to unintended areas.
  • Stay Upright: Remain in an upright position for four hours post-treatment to help the solution settle properly.
  • Avoid Exercise: Refrain from vigorous exercise for 24 hours to reduce the risk of bruising and swelling.

What to Expect in the Following Days

In the days following your treatment, you might notice some mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. These effects are typically minimal and should subside within a few days. You can use an ice pack to help reduce any swelling if needed.

Follow-Up and Maintenance

Your practitioner will advise on when to schedule a follow-up appointment, usually within two weeks, to assess the results and ensure everything is progressing as expected. Depending on the treatment area and individual response, results can last from three to six months. Regular maintenance appointments are recommended to keep your appearance smooth and wrinkle-free.
